Track Name: Take Me Away
My head's a mess, so I'd better make the best of this. Pick up the pieces and pull myself together. And oh, how cliche, another wreck in the junk pile. I've seen this before. My memory's faded, body's jaded. Euphoria’s long gone, though it felt so strong. So I guess a return to bed might help my head, because facing reality is what I dread. When I could turn away for another day. Comotose and warm forever I’ll stay. And a brand new day won't save me now. It'll take longer that to sort this out. Watching convultion's not fun off your face. The one memory I want rid of is the one I can't erase. And oh, how cliche, another wreck in the junk pile. I've seen this before. My memory's faded, body's jaded. Euphoria’s long gone, though it felt so strong. So I guess a return to bed might help my head, because facing reality is what I dread. So take me away.
Track Name: Ode To The Innocent
This is the ode to the innocent who perrish at the hands of the militant regimes that are killing them. The conflicts iminant, this domination instigates fear with the 60 year occupation of the holy land. It defies the main objective which they claim justifies any right to invade, because they don't bring development or aid. All I see them bringing is the western police state. In shock, rooted to the spot. Antisipating, waiting for the bombs to drop. Facing the ultimatum from the twilight of the gods. And the futures hopeless, getting bombed at any given moment. Left dead or homeless. Will this never be over? Because warfare is continuous in their attempts to exploit resource, and keep people in place. Always looking for developing countries to 'liberate'. But you're not free when you've got a gun to your head. You're not free when they scrutinize every step that you take. In shock, rooted to the spot. Antisipating, waiting for the bombs to drop. Facing the ultimatum from the twilight of the gods. But you're not free when you've got a gun to your head. You're not free.
Track Name: All It Will Ever Be
She said please don't leave me. He can't take it any more. She says stand by my side, but he is half way out the door. She says please don't leave me. She thinks it might be fine. But questions lead to queries, and there is no price for time. He says he can't move foreward. It always feels too awkward. And he feels so trapped. How can he leave her when she begs him to stay? She says please dont leave me. She's never giving up. But what is left to say when he is feeling half as much? She says please don't leave me, like a repetative old rhyme. But questions lead to queries and there is no price for time. He says he can't move foreward. It always feels too awkward. And he feels so trapped. How can he leave her when she begs him to stay? So he says and it's fine. But that's all it will ever be.
Track Name: Dear Miss Ryan
Dear Miss Ryan, I've thought about this for so long, over and over, my anger still burns strong. I could say that you are the devil, but i don't want to stoop to you're level. Insults and such like you threw at me, but i sat and took them silently. This only seemed to enrage you further, as you forced me to include my mother. And then called me immature, one that stood out amongst others, while you and Mrs Fearon shouted over each other. You needn't have bothered. Because in the adult world we learn to control ourselves and take turns. Aparently unlike you that is something that i have learnt. You banned the whole of sixth form over night, claiming the common room is a privilege, not our right. We weren't allowed back in until I'd 'confessed my crime', the biggest injustice i knew at the time. You never had any evidence but you tried to make me pay. Because of you people think it was me to this day. Maybe I should never have stayed. Maybe that was the price to pay to keep my dignity intact, and not to be told how to act. But I did stay, and I guess experience is good because it's made me who i am today. I know that this is futile and i should say it to your face. But I am never going to see you again and I'm glad that's the case. You were never one for listening anyway. Another example of a power trip still relevant today. I've learned not to compramise on what you believe to be right. Through struggle and strife. Thanks for the lesson, have a nice life.
Track Name: Talk Of The Town
As loud as I shout I can't be heard above the crowd, and those who hear me don't care what it's all about. My word of mouth get's drowned out by the sound of the talk of the town. It feels like I'm going round and round on a spiral heading down. Away from the stormy weather, the breeze carries me like a feather. I'm happy like I was in my youth, before I linked it all together. Through the lense of truth, star gazing on the roof. Through the atmosphere, into the stratosphere. Finally I'm cut loose. Judging by your reaction you're too caught up in distraction. But I will not settle for the black and white over the option of full spectral light. Because now we anger too regularly, harm each other rather than work together towards prosperity. What will become of me?
Track Name: Roll Of The Dice
We've been here once before, and now we're here again. Trying to decide which direction to take. Weighing options while we stand at the crossroads. Living for today but considering tomorrow. Don't let opportunities pass you by. Always try to make the most out of life. Deep in thought, mabe we should think twice? Just another roll of the dice to decide... Just another roll of the dice. If you're not careful you might find yourself on thin ice. Just another roll of the dice. If you're not carefull you might pay the price. The decisions we make to shape our fate, the intiative we take to stake our claim for what is true. It's up to you to make the choice, but we must stay true to what we believe to be right. Always try to make the most out of life. Deep in thought, mabe we should think twice? Just another roll of the dice to decide... Just another roll of the dice. If you're not careful you might find yourself on thin ice. Just another roll of the dice. If you're not carefull you might pay the price.
